MONTREAL (AP) — Sporting KC goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen punched away Matteo Ferrari's header in added time as Montreal struggled to a 0-0 draw Saturday to keep the Impact in the MLS playoff hunt.

Montreal picked up its first point in three games since ending its team-record five-game winning streak.

Montreal goalkeeper Troy Perkins made a point-blank stop on Kei Kamara 14 minutes into the game. Justin Mapp had the Impact's best opportunity in the first half, but his shot went wide of the left post.

Sporting KC midfielder Jacob Peterson was on the bench after coming out of the game when he was shown a red card by referee Jorge Gonzalez in the 90th minute.

Arnaud and Impact midfielder Collen Warner were shown yellow cards. Warner will miss Montreal's next game in Houston on Oct. 6.
